It is very affordable and it's ok, but I think exfoliating with micro-crystal based products is better as it is a deeper one, therefore you don't have to do it as often. This product can dry out your skin if used for extended periods of time

This product is amazing. I don't get acne anymore but once in awhile but it leaves your skin feeling so clean and fresh. I have probably been using this for about 8 years now.

I just this scrub once daily. It keeps my skin soft and the acne at bay. Depending on the season, it can make my skin feel tight after using the product to clean my face. But that's an easy fix with daily moisturizer. I've used other brands of facial scrubs and this one has the right amount and texture of grit/sand/scrub to get the job done and not feel like you're attacking your skin.

This is my favorite facial scrub! I use it every time I wash my face and even use it on my neck and chest in the shower. It makes my skin feel so soft and help with any acne or dryness I have. one of things I love most about these products is that most of them can be used as a scrub or a mask so it's perfect for whatever mood I'm in

I have been using this product for a while and liked the clean feeling it provided... however, after going in for a facial, I was told that the tiny beads in this formula (and many others) was actually tearing my skin and Samsung it for the future :( I was disappointed because the product is otherwise great - especially the smell...

I live by this facial scrub. My skin is combination and i find that using this every 2-3 days is wonderful. Gives a really clean and refreshed feeling to the skin after use.

I have been using this product for 17 years now and I absolutely love it. It removes dead skin and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. I have always had a blackhead issue until I started using St.Ives face scrub on a regular basis.

I think this is a great product. I don't have sensitive skin and I usually get oily around my T-zone area. Since my skin isn't sensitive, I can get away with using this more than 4 times a week. I hardly ever get breakouts and people complement me all the time on my skin and are surprised when I say I only use this product -and I'm not one of those people born with incredible skin either.

I've used this for years now and I won't ever stop. St. Ives really knows what it's doing when it comes to beauty products. I love that it's all natural and I can stop using it for a week and my face doesn't immediately break out again.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
